German artist Volker Kühn’s miniature shadow boxes reference recognizable modern artworks: Miniature men push Piet Mondrian-style blocks of primary color into place in Homage to Mondrian, Mondrian in Progress; a life-sized apple hovers above a man in a bowler hat in an homage to Magritte titled Dies ist Kein Magritte (This is no Magritte) (2015). Kühn has been making these three-dimensional artworks as part of his ongoing “Art in Boxes” series since 1986, inspired by the found object shadow boxes of Joseph Cornell. After apprenticing with a traditional furniture maker and studying sculpture at the Bremen Academy of Arts, Kühn began crafting boxes and filling them with mixed-media objects from his growing collection of pieces found in the trash or gathered in novelty shops and nature.
